Contractors build life-sized mockup for Apple's future Campus 2

updated 02:35 pm EST, Mon January 27, 2014

Structure used to test look, methods, tolerances

Contractors have assembled a life-sized section mockup for Apple's upcoming Campus 2 complex in Cupertino, reports say. The structure can be seen at a parking lot at Tantau Avenue between Pruneridge and Vallco, just a short distance from the Campus 2 site. Submitted permit documents indicate that the mockup measures 9,000 square feet, and is meant to "test construction methods, tolerances and the visual appearance of precast concrete elements."

When segments are joined together, the completed building will have a ring shape, giving it its "spaceship" nickname. Campus 2 is still a long ways from completion, however. Apple is only now demolishing existing buildings on the site, and the first phase of construction is only due to finish by 2016.

    I wonder if it'd be possible to pick that mockup when the design it finalized. It looks like it'd make a great little cafe. I wonder if iCafe is taken.
